Auburdale man killed after his tractor gets rear-ended by car

AUBURNDALE, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin man was killed after his tractor was rear-ended by a car. 

74-year-old Kenneth Brandl of Auburndale died at a Marshfield hospital after the crash, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday on Highway 10 in Auburndale. 

Wood County sheriff's deputies said Brandl's tractor was pulling an empty gravity box west on 10, when his unit was rear-ended by a car driven by a 55-year-old Plainfield man. 

The State Patrol said alcohol did not appear to be a factor. 

Investigators are still trying to determine how fast each motorist was going.
